Ellipsis’ Ultimate Valentine’s Playlist
Last week, our music ed Cecily took to Facebook to find out what the music team thought were the best Valentine’s-related songs. Here’s what we came up with!
Whistle For The Choir- The Fratellis
Deputy music ed Chloe is absolutely not under any circumstances interested in ever getting married, but just in case, she’s picked out her wedding song, and it just so happens to be this one.
Last Request- Paolo Nutini
General consensus is that Paolo Nutini is a bit of a fittie, and Last Request is a tune.
Toothpaste Kisses- The Maccabees
Most people associate this early Maccabees track with iconic movie Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging, and if that film isn’t enough to get you in the Valentine’s mood I don’t know what will.
She’s Always A Woman- Billy Joel
Shoutout to Laura’s ‘Can’t Cope-stake’ playlist on Spotify for this gem.
The Girl- City and Colour
Real Love Baby- Father John Misty
A Million Love Songs- Take That
Laura requested a whopping 13 Take That tunes when we asked for our music team’s faves, but we’ve chosen this one, for fairly obvious reasons.
Small Bones- Courteeners
Kiss Me- Sixpence None The Richer
Suuuuuuuch a throwback.
Sea Of Love- Cat Power
All That I Want Is You- The Magic Gang
We really love The Magic Gang here at Ellipsis- it’s just a shame that hardly any of their songs are happy enough to fit in on this playlist, and we had to really think about it before we settled on All That I Want Is You.
Heroes- David Bowie
Fuck You- Lily Allen
Ah. So romantic.
Junk of the Heart (Happy)- The Kooks
All I Want- Kodaline
Try and go to a Kodaline gig without crying at this, I dare you.
Harvest Moon- Neil Young
WHAT A BEAUT.
Electric Love- BORNS
Electric Love is suuuuper upbeat and has a nice indiepop vibe- and it’s not sad either, which is a big deal considering our struggles to find happy love songs!
I Need My Girl- The National
Cherry Wine- Hozier
It is so beautiful he is so beautiful (the live version especially).
You Make My Dreams- Hall & Oates
500 Days of Summer, anyone?
I Wanna Be Yours- Arctic Monkeys
5 Years Time- Noah and the Whale
Home- Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros
Lovely Day- Bill Withers
Surprise Yourself- Jack Garratt
True- Spandeau Ballet
Friday I’m In Love- The Cure
Thursday I don’t care about you it’s fried egg I’m in love.
Robbers- The 1975
Ellipsis would like to say that they aren’t mostly made up of massive The 1975 fangirls, but they’d all be liars.
Angels- The xx
What’s that? Oh, just the sound of my HEART BREAKING.
Short but sweet, this one. Oh, but it’s a goodun.
forever- Lewis Watson
There was a lot of debate amongst us about which Lewis Watson song would be best for this playlist, and the conclusion we came to was ALL OF THEM… but they won’t all fit, so here’s forever.
Sexbomb- Tom Jones
Not naming names, but a couple of our team have actually seen Tom Jones live in concert- they’re not ashamed about it, but in order to maintain the idea that we’re even somewhat cool, it’s probably best that we keep our mouths shut.
You Can Leave Your Hat On- Joe Cocker
She’s Got You High- Mumm-Ra
Shout Out To My Ex- Little Mix
Oh hot damn this is my jam.
Let It Die- Fiest
Get ready to feel the feels.
